To meet the growing needs of patients in Palm Beach County, Cleveland Clinic Florida recently expanded its West Palm Beach location. Located on the 14th floor of CityPlace Tower, in downtown West Palm Beach, the expansion brings into use an additional 9,750 square feet of new space, allowing Cleveland Clinic Florida to accommodate more specialists in internal medicine, pulmonary medicine and sports medicine.

Staff recently completed additional training enabling them to expand diagnostic testing for Cardiac MRIs and Cardiac CT scans offered through the Imaging Center, located on the first floor of CityPlace Tower. The West Palm Beach facility also provides diagnostic testing for bone density, ultrasound, mammography and general x-ray imaging services.
